Pointy pumps

I personally adore pointy pumps, I find that they are so feminine and chic yet quite sexy. They are often uncomfortable -being so narrow on the front- and often quite high, but they will upgrade each and every outfit. Here are my favourites for this Winter....

Which one do you like?

Hey sweeties, I will soon get the I phone 5!
So excited about that!
I have already begun searching for a case- which of course should be stylish but most importantly it should protect my phone. Dont know if I have mentioned that before, but I tend to be kinda clumpsy!!

In search of the perfect red lipstick

Do you have any favourite red lipsticks?
I do, and unfortunately there are more than a couple. In fact they are eleven! Eleven different shades of red, most of them warm and some cool, some bright and others dark. I totally understand people who just have one favourite signature red lipstick but this never works for me cause I get bored too easilly plus I like experimenting with new shades and textures- although not everything I try works for me.
Below is a picture of the lipsticks' swatches in the sunlight.

And here are the lipsticks' swatches under artificial light.

Hope this post was helpful......
cause to me photos of swatches come particularly handy when shopping online!By the way my colour currently is between NC25 and NC30.
